Module 2 - "Street performance, organization and communication with public for beginners"

Suitable for actors, performers, directors, clowns as well as event managers/producers who would like both get a new interesting  experience of  creating performance from the very beginning and improvisation and take part in the organization of the process. Organizers who would like to develop skills interacting with the public in the process of street and spectacle performance are welcome to apply. Your training in performance and management is considered but not critical in our selection. 

This is an opportunity to take part in creating real projects where you will deliver unexpected tasks with delightful consequences.  The way you are involved in participation depends on your desires, talents and diligence. For the experienced specialists the internship can become a base for experiments, public realization of art plans, research for new directions.

2017-05-03 | design internship, events

Animal Farm

Cardboardia Mobile Embassy-farm in UK

at Town’s countryside during Summer in Southside festival!

17 and 18 June 12-00 to 17.30pm (free entry), Ladywell Walk, Birmingham (UK)

Cardboardia is a country without territory. It was founded 10 years ago and we’re celebrating our tenth anniversary this year! 2017 has another very important date in world history – the one hundredth anniversary of the October Social Revolution in Russia!

We’ve decided to combine these 2 remarkable and historical dates and create a series happenings and celebrations throughout this year.

The first Mobile Cardboardia Embassy of 2017 will open in the UK in Birmingham as part of Southside Summer Festival. One of the best texts about the repercussions of the revolution in Russia was ‘Animal Farm’ written by George Orwell, a British author. 

We've decided to create a Cardboardia Animal Farm – with pigs and fences, combining the mixed feelings of safety in cages and with closeness of death.

Like a bright final we propose to form columns of not prepared demonstration in glory of George Orwell!

We are planning to bring the countryside into the urban city centre environment, near the Hippodrome right on Ladywell Walk! We will be making masks to feel like counterfeit animals and designing cardboard garden tools to become fake farmers!  Only we will won’t be making our Animal Farm to grow food, but to cultivate crazy ideas together! 

You too can become a Cardboardia personage and farmer and join our team in advance to help us develop our unique town based farm! To join the Cardboardia Laboratory for 5 days please fill in this form, we look forward to meeting you!

Cardboardia laboratory from 14 June at Studio 5 (prior registration needed). From 11am to 20pm.

If some question’s please email to

Cardboardia Film Studio on Sziget Festival
2017-06-11 | events

Cardboardia Film Studio

The filming studio of Cardboardia will be in creation mode during five days of the Sziget festival ( Each day we will be creating a unique universe and shooting stories, inspired by a variety of film genres. Great themes such as zombie apocalypse, love stories, war epics, prison escape adventures and superheroes sagas will be the canvas for the scenes to shoot with the audience.

We will create a multifunctional space (shooting studio, props and costumes workshop area and open air set) where anyone can become - alternately or simultaneously - set designer, props and costume maker or movie hero. Everyone will have the chance to create their own personage and join the shooting sessions and be part of the new ingenious plan of famous and absolutely inexperienced film director Tyran of Cardboardia (Russia) and his assistant and right hand - Cardboardia’s Minister of Circus & Circumstances (Greece).

On a daily schedule from 11am to 6pm, the about-to-become-celebrities members of the Sziget audience will be able to:

  • work with cardboard on props creation, mask and costume making, set construction.
  • join rehearsal sessions, where we will try to create the unique stories and personages.
  • take part in the actual shooting of their stories and bring their heroes to life.
  • be a member of the daily Cardboardia Film EPIC scene shooting! A procession in the festival’s main roads, where the epic scenes for our movies will be being shot each day.

Cardboardia is a country without territory. It was founded 10 years ago and this year we are celebrating our 10th anniversary! The year 2017 is marking some other very important dates in world history as well – the 25th year of festival Sziget foundation in Hungary!  

We are uniting to celebrate both this remarkable dates! Tyran of Cardboardia, following the precepts of some forbidden now philosopher and mind changer, who already century ago ago  said that cinematograph is the most important of the arts, sees a beautiful chance to check this within a music and multidisciplinary arts festival that is Sziget.
